The late actress, Jean Seberg, who was in Jean Luc-Goddard's "Breathless" was another target of the FBI. She also committed suicide.
"During the late 1960s, Seberg used her high-profile image to privately voice support for the NAACP and supported Native American school groups such as the Mesquaki Bucks at the Tama settlement near her home town of Marshalltown, for whom she purchased $500 worth of basketball uniforms. She also supported the Black Panther Party.
After Richard Nixon's resignation from the presidency, the United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, a U.S. Senate committee chaired by Senator Frank Church (D-ID) and usually referred to as the Church Committee, revealed that the FBI used illegally obtained information about Jean Seberg to concoct an article it planted in Newsweek magazine that defamed the actress, who was then seven months pregnant with her second child.
The FBI's goal was to "cause her embarrassment and serve to cheapen her image with the public".
Accordingly to some authors and researchers, the FBI's actions against Jean Seberg resulted in her suicide. Her death led fifteen months later to the suicide of her husband Romain Gary.
The story planted by the FBI in the Newsweek magazine was related to allegations that Seberg had an affair with Clint Eastwood while filming Paint Your Wagon. and that in 1970, Seberg had an affair with a college student named Carlos Navarra, which resulted in the pregnancy of her daughter. It was when she was seven months pregnant that the FBI created the false story that the child she was carrying was not fathered by her husband Romain Gary, but by a member of the Black Panthers Party, Raymond Hewitt. The story was also reported by gossip columnist Joyce Haber of the Los Angeles Times, and Newsweek magazine. During her pregnancy, Seberg claimed that her husband Gary was the father. She gave birth to a girl named Nina on August 23, 1970, but the infant died two days later."
